Even in the midst of a pandemic, more than 4,000 nurses took the time to complete American Nurse Journal’s 2020 Nursing Trends and Salary Survey. The results are featured in the November issue of the journal. We asked a wide range of questions, including how the pandemic is affecting nurses’ career plans, ways they’ve reacted to workplace bullying, and if they’ve received a salary increase in the last 12 months. Read the full article to learn how they answered these and many more questions.

Is your healthcare organization prepared for a patient surge? What systems have been put in place to manage an influx of patients in the event of a natural disaster, mass casualty incident, or pandemic? This issue’s CNE article focuses on how nurse leaders can facilitate a culture of readiness that can turn a disaster into manageable chaos with positive patient outcomes.

This issue also features articles on a variety of other topics, including bipolar disorder, regional nerve blocks, shift work and sleep, interprofessional collaboration, and decision-making.
